I will always choose Blue Ridge, Dr. Cowles and Dr. Trostle. What a great clinic. The staff and vets are wonderful.
Due to a scheduling mix-up, the stem cell treatment for my horse was due to arrive at BREC before we’d had a chance to schedule an appointment for it to be injected. When I was unable to haul my horse from Hanover to Earlysville that day, Dr. Trostle (who had just returned from an out of town conference the night before and who was in the midst of BREC’s once a month MRI day) came to us (approximately an hour and a half away) to take care of the procedure. Dr. Trostle and BREC really saved the day by providing above and beyond customer service!
I cannot think of a thing (to improve). I was very apprehensive re: my horse’s condition and outcome. Everyone understood and did everything possible to accomodate me to ensure a positive outcome and minimize my concern for my horse. It was a great experience…
A heartfelt thank you for the tremendous work your team performed on Sprout and Lulu. The past 2 weeks have been an education for me on the vast medical resources available at BREC. I truly realized the extent and depth of veterinary talents within your organization. I feel totally blessed knowing you are there for me and my equines.
Last year, just about this time, you treated Farrari for enteritis and gastric ulcers. Successfully. I wanted to let you know that he came through this year’s show season beautifully, using the Gastrogard and Smart Gut Ultra protocol. He will continue on the pellets until the end of October so fingers crossed that he will remain stable once those are discontinued. He loves his hay net, the more often the better. And second best, after good health, the earned himself a Top Ten at the Arabian Sport Horse Nationals out of 30 horses!

Please pass on to Dr. Stephens, Dr. Trostle, Dr. Simon and Dr. Fouse that Alzine was peacefully laid to rest on Sunday afternoon in the field behind the barn that she was born in. Please let all of them know how much I appreciate their utmost efforts and care of her during her stay there. Your organization is truly extraordinary. Even though the outcome was not what we had hoped, I would not have done anything different. I needed to know that everything possible was done to save her, and the professionalism and knowledge of the team at BREC helped me come to the ultimate conclusion that letting her go was the best thing for her. Many tears were shed when we came to pick her up on Sunday, and I truly appreciated the empathy felt by Dr. Trostle, Susie, and Dr. Simon.
Thank you so much, Anne, for your speedy reply and your consideration for giving me a little education in the process. This, along with the wonderful Dr. Hecking is the reason I want to be your customer! You all have a wonderful day.
Thanks so much to Dr. Santos. He did a excellent job with my baby gurl Penny today. The staff here is passionate and very professional. They give good detail as to whats going on and how the issue can be treated. Im so thankful for the Doctors and staff at the facility.
I just want to thank you guys for all the great care and excellent service that you gave me and Phoenix. You guys always came whenever we needed you. It didn’t matter if it was on the weekend or late at night. You always came. You were also very caring – sending emails or making calls just to check on how things were going.
I am truly appreciative to all that Dr. Moore and everyone at BREC has done to get him healthy and make him a star! He is having a tremendous show season this year.
I want everyone at BREC to know that Tabby is THE best vet you could possibly have. Not only does she take wonderful care of my beloved horses and truly cares about them and is so extremely competent. I know she spent far more time with my gang than she had intended but that did not deter her one bit to stay with me to make sure all was well. AND she works so hard. You all probably don’t remember that when I first arrived in Va. Jargy was definitely not himself. Two vets told me to put him to pasture he was old. Finally I got ahold of and Tabby who recognized that it was EPM and we started him on medication right away. She saved Jargy’s life. I can tell you all I wouldn’t have another vet ever.
Thank you so much for hosting the dinner and informative seminar last night. I really enjoyed the time learning cutting edge information and getting to spend time visiting with fellow horse people. It makes me very appreciative of all the knowledge you have made available to us. It is very comforting to know you all are here and ready to help when we need you.
I cannot think of anything that you need to do to improve…everyone was wonderful! Although I came to you with a heavy heart, you quickly reassured me that this was a situation that you could handle and I was impressed through every step of the surgery and recovery process with your professionalism and kindness. Thank you from me, my daughter, and Gabe!
Thank you so much for your excellent care and compassion shown to Zack and me during our visits to the clinic over the past few months. He is such a sensitive guy, and I love him so much – you made a scary and difficult time so much easier to bear. I always know my animals are safe in your hands! I hope you all know how grateful I am.
And a huge Thank You to the entire staff for all that you do to help owners provide the best care available to our equine friends. Special thanks to Jean who is always calm and efficient no matter how ‘un-calm’ I might be when a situation seems overwhelming. And a huge Merry Christmas greeting to Dr. Dagner. You continue to take the time to educate, encourage and care about the horses after all these years. I couldn’t ask for more! You guys are THE BEST!

Thank you very much for the excellent care the BREC staff provided. Please pass along my thanks to Dr. Trostle and most especially the LVTs and staff who took care of Baby Hope!

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how much we appreciate all that you for our babies and for us! Your love and concern for the horses is so apparent, and whatever the circumstances, I always know they’re in good hands. Thank you more than you know!
“One year ago, Dr. Trostle did colic surgery on Honor. His recovery wasn’t completely smooth as he relapsed back into reflux mode after we thought he was in the clear. Dr. Trostle thought there was a good chance Honor would recover completely and I’m very happy to report he has!! This pic is Honor and I competing at the ODH hunter pace this last weekend. Thanks so much for your wonderful care.”
